(Trenton) -- Today, New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman John Currie applauded the announcement of former U.S. Secretary of State and U.S. Senator from New York, Hillary Rodham Clinton, that she will seek the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.
“I am excited that Hillary Clinton has declared her intent to seek the White House in 2016. She is the embodiment of America's pioneering spirit. Throughout her career she has been dedicated to expanding the middle class and creating a safer, more secure world,” said the Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, John Currie.
"I know a challenging campaign lays ahead, but, as a general principle, it would be nice if our sisters, daughters and granddaughters could look to the highest office in the land without wondering whether a glass ceiling bars their entry,” Currie added. "No matter who ultimately becomes the Democratic nominee, I am confident that he or she will win the White House."
Hillary Clinton's life is an inspiring story of hard-work and determination. An attorney, public servant, former First Lady, U.S. Senator from New York, well-traveled U.S. Secretary of State, mother and, now, grandmother, she is especially qualified to lead the United States of America.
